Looking Good in Layers

WHY WE LOVE THE LOOK:
When in doubt, put on another layer. That is style dogma according to Frazier, who layers (multiple) timeless, classic men’s silhouettes at a time to suit life in all-over-the-map Northwest temps.
“I’m drawn to anything I see that has the potential to go over, under, around or with other pieces, like long, elegant scarves or a cotton blazer worn as a jacket,” the Capitol Hill resident says. The result is gentlemanly with an added ounce of the debonair, pulling in hip-again pocket squares and ’60s-esque eye bobs. Or, the long and lanky style blogger often rolls up his favorite skinny jeans above the ankle to show off a pair of mod striped socks.
